P-F09: Week 13 Wrap-up Email

I hope everyone had a great/relaxing/fulfilling/delicious Thanksgiving...... or at least that Kyle has recovered from his self induced Turkey-coma, aggie loss, Beaver's Ice House food baby, and massive hangover from our night at Petrol Station and some dive bar (where his fantasically bearded pot-head friend tried to convince me that he understood competition and the effects of steroids in sports better than myself... and I believe in music too, but seriously, this guy knew nothing of competitive sports... and like, seriously seriously, no one can bullsh!t on either side of a topic for hours drunk like I can... but I'm available late evenings for anyone who would like to try...... oh crap, where was I?)

Ah yes, turkeys, aggies, and whatnot. Earlier in the week I posted a love letter written by an aggie on TexAgs.com (a great fan site btw, just not my cup of tea... I use it more for fodder for emails and blog posts). I have since gone back and added my comments to the letter. Thank you aggies for being so lovable.

While on the subject of taunting, I added a dig at the sooners. TTU's drubbing of that broken team made me a little happier inside... Schadenfreude. (apologies to Jon, who is a good Dallas native and sooner, if there is such a thing).

Catching up on some open ended bonus question results, I posted the responses to the Week 12 NFL (...is there anything different about Titans/Texans) and NCAA (Name Your Drink) questions and retro-added the points. The Name Your Drink post turned out great. I could have cleaned that up and put it up on TheFerm.org. Thanks for great responses!

Week 14 will mark the end of the NCAA Pick'em Contest. It will be an interesting week for Dave (107) and Justin (105). In order to create a full card, there will be Thursday NCAA games. Be on the lookout for the card tonight. In the past we've had a gentleman's agreement here that for the final week that those in contention for a money spot (#1 or #2) cannot resubmit their cards. Keep this in mind if your name is Dave, Justin, Kirby (101), or Kevin (100).

Five weeks still remain in the NFL Pick'em Contest. That gives plenty of time for the field to catch up to Kirby, who surprisingly is able to spend a lot more time researching picks since the end of October. Are you really changing diapers? One more really good week and you can expect the jinx bonus question.

My records show that everyone has paid their $25 entry but KW, GF, JHo, and DB. Please let me know if my records are incorrect.

I think that covers it... peace.

P-F21: Week 10 NFL Bonus - Baseball is over, now what?

Losing baseball season isn’t like losing football, but it can still be a difficult event for some. While we are deprived of baseball season’s physical presence, we can still reconcile -- you know what, we’ll figure it out. Below are some ways you are honoring the memory or just moving right along. Sleep Astros! (AP): “Go to sleep on time during the week!” (3)  -- apparently you aren’t into MACtion Beelzebubbles (CC): “Now I can get some decent sleep during the work week” (3) More time for football 18 National Championships (CG): “Plenty of football and golf” (2) Bite a Kneecap Offs (RK): “MACtion!” (4) -- yes! Holiday, celebrate! Masks [ON]/OFF (RH): “Fried turkey, gravy and pie, oh my!!” (5) -- love this answer Swamp Dogs (DR): “Christmas!!!

P-F21: Week 7 NFL Bonus: Best news of the year!

It’s a mad world. Let’s parse out some good. Everyone gets POSITIVE bonus scores! (One thing though. I forgot to add “in the NFL” to my bonus question, but maybe you guys behaved yourselves) A Northmen (AN): “Brittney's dad will no longer be her conservator! #freebritney” She went on with a bunch of crap about TSwift, but I’ll spare you. On Brit, of course, she should have the right the fk up her life. That’s great news! +4 T-Horns (AM): “Matt Jones developing earlier than expected.” Wait, are we talking about Mac Jones? +2? Astros! (AP): “OU/Texas coming to the SEC!” This is great news. See what happened is Texas got in OU’s head, then Texas “Trojan Horsed” their themselves in the SEC, where Texas will then ruin the SEC from the inside. +3 Buddy the Chimp (BC): “Bananas.” Buddy, you get bananas all the time. Dream bigger. +3 Cornholio's Bunghole (BO): “Just destroying America is not enough for Joe Biden, so he destroyed Afghanistan. I wonder what country will be ne

1 I once watched this planetarium show on dark matter. I’m familiar with matter. I’m not saying current or future me could define it, but it is like -- stuff. However dark matter isn’t the dark stuff. Dark matter is like all the other stuff that we aren’t familiar with, and on top of that, apparently the universe contains an unknown amount of matter that we cannot observe! 2 Speaking of matter, small wins matter. Not only do small wins add up to major accomplishments, but small wins have also been shown to give enormous emotional boosts. (I think you see where I am going with this.) 3 Enough said.
